France Full-back Maxime Medard will miss his team's Six Nations match against Ireland at the Stade de France on Sunday due to injury

Medard injured his knee playing for France's 17-23 victory over Scotland at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Medard, who scored what turned out to be the winning try on the hour mark in Edinburgh on Sunday, will be replaced by Toulouse teammate Clement Poitrenaud.

The rest of the French squad is unchanged for the Irish game, which was originally scheduled for February 4, but postponed minutes before kickoff due to the freezing conditions and the state of the pitch.

Coach Philippe Saint-Andre will announce his starting lineup on Tuesday.
